Fruquintinib is a Small Molecule owned by Hutchison MediPharma, and is involved in 59 clinical trials, of which 17 were completed, 27 are ongoing, and 15 are planned.

Fruquintinib is an anti cancer agent. Fruquintinib is a selective, small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor of VEGF receptors 1, 2 and 3. The vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and VEGF receptors (VEGFRs) play a pivotal role in tumor-related angiogenesis. Inhibition of VEGF signaling in tumor vasculature represents an exciting therapeutic strategy, with the potential to arrest the development of new blood vessels essential for tumor growth and metastasis.

The revenue for Fruquintinib is expected to reach a total of $6.4bn through 2038. This change impacts the valuation of this asset and is an important factor to understand the current value of the drug in a clinical process. View the complete picture with the Fruquintinib NPV Report.

GlobalData, the leading provider of industry intelligence, provided the underlying data, research, and analysis used to produce this article.

To create this model, GlobalData takes into account factors including patent law, known and projected regulatory approval processes, cash flows, potential applicable patients, drug margins, company expenses, and pricing estimates. Combining these data points with GlobalData’s world class analysis creates high value models that companies can use to help in evaluation processes for each drug or company.

The rNPV method integrates the probability of a drug reaching a clinical stage into the cash flow at that time, which provides a more accurate rNPV, as it considers the probability that the drug never makes it through the clinical pathway to commercialization. GlobalData’s rNPV model uses proprietary likelihood of approval (LoA)and phase transition success rate(PTSR) data for the indication in the highest development stage, which can be found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
